I know I'm off topic again but I thought this answer might be of help to some of you who have had similiar problems!
First, thank you to those who took the time to offer help regarding the blue and pink links!!! As you may notice they are back to white... :0)
I posted the question in the Blogger Group help section and a fellow there had a great suggestion...remove all the Word coding in the Ruby post and see what happens...(he could see there was a problem with the coding for that post).
I composed the Ruby post in Word, pasted to Blogger and had problems with the font etc., right from the beginning...so...I removed the Ruby post and voila the links are back to white. I'm now in the process of removing all the Word coding but it is slow and difficult for me. I wondering if it would just be easier to retype the whole think in Blogger...at least I know exactly what I'm doing there...
My lesson learned is...do not compose in Word and past to Blogger, as the coding doesn't mix well!!!
I will be back on topic later in the week...
